Today In Communication History

On this date in 1988 – NBC aired ‘To Heal A Nation’, the story of Jan Scruggs’ effort to build the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

NOTE: We have entered a new era in screen ratings. Nielsen is expanding its sample of TV viewers to include new
homes with meters that record the channel being watched—but not the demographics of the people watching. That will be estimated using data modeling and an algorithm Nielsen has developed, and added to the current sample that does include people meters that measure demos. The Panel Expansion (NPX), in which 12,900 households have been added to the national sample, is at the center of this change. The household ratings in these homes are measured by meters on each television in the home, while the demographic ratings in these homes will be assigned by Nielsen using a statistical algorithm. This is the first time since 1987 that homes in the national sample are not equipped with PeopleMeters, which measure both the program viewed and the people watching it.


He said it first....'Television'.

He said it first….’Television’.

In 1900, the term ‘television’ is coined by Constantin Perskyi at the International Electricity Congress, part of the 1900 Paris Exhibition.

Quote Of The Day
‘I just want to say to the kids out there watching: You can do anything you want in life. Unless Jay Leno wants to do it too.’
Conan O’Brien

Mobile/Digital Research
Mobile Shoppers Want To See The Product
Being able to see product pictures via a smartphone or tablet device is the most important mcommerce-related capability, according to US shoppers. Nielsen surveyed 3,734 US mobile shoppers ages 18 and older during Q4 2015 about using smartphones and tablets for ecommerce activities.
Almost half (48%) of smartphone shoppers said that using the mobile-friendly version of a website was important for mcommerce. More than a third of tablet shoppers said the same thing.

Being able to read product reviews, having the product descriptions and having the ability to compare product prices were other mcommerce-related capabilities both smartphone and tablet shoppers considered important.

More tablet shoppers than smartphone shoppers said the size of the text or link on the website was important—perhaps surprising considering tablets’ larger screens. On the flip side, tablet shoppers were less concerned than their smartphone-wielding counterparts about using mobile-friendly websites, likely thanks to those larger screens.
In general, mobile commerce had a breakthrough year in 2015. Indeed, smartphone retail mcommerce sales in the US nearly doubled, driven by larger screens, smoother buying experiences, better mobile search and context-driven discovery.

And, eMarketer expects US retail mcommerce sales will reach $123.13 billion in 2016, a 39.1% increase over 2015 and more than double the amount in 2014. As a result of this rapid growth, mcommerce will account for just under one-third of retail ecommerce sales and 2.6% of total retail this year.
